2013 Our Finest Selection, O.F.S.

Harvest extended over eight weeks, from the last week of August through October, with the warmer Ritchie and Estate vineyards being picked first. The remaining cooler vineyards harvested to make up this elegant, rich Chardonnay were Hawk Hill, Heintz, Boriolo, Norris, Windmill, and Piziali. The long growing season, in combination with moderate weather at harvest, contributed to the complexity and depth of the grape flavors.
